It's so hard to choose just one favorite memory of my "other mother" who lived across the street from me while I was in my teens. She always had a smile and a giggle in spite of all the drama I'm sure we all brought to the house as we were going through our teenage angst years. All the Mary Kay makeovers and other girly things she encouraged. She will live on in my memory as a bright spot in my growing years. You will be remembered well Momma Caribee...See you again one day on the other side.

Caribee was my very close friend and a wonderful person. She loved Ken and her precious family. We met about 30 years ago and she and her sister Mary Beth treated me as their sister. All having been divorced about the same time, we formed a very special bond. I will miss her joyful laughter and lust for life. Caribee was my once in a lifetime friend.

Caribee was a long-time companion and comfort to my brother, Ken Hoover, along with her two daughters and granddaughter. She will be sorely missed.
